    I believe Taam is almost fully healed from his injury. He just participated in the national Ironman tournament for state champions.

    Great Respect to those who battled! Great job by all but Terukina -Estrella-few others stood out. SHAME on those who did not complete who were not injured 🤕In other words SCARED TO COMPETE .
